The Davidoff Year of the Dragon has arrived in stores, just in time to celebrate the Chinese New Year. This exclusive release marks the culmination of a complete zodiac cycle under Davidoff’s coveted “Year of” series, beginning with the inaugural 2012 Cuvée Selection 2012 Year of the Dragon.
Crafted as a limited edition, the Year of the Dragon cigar is a 7 1/2 x 50 double corona featuring a meticulously curated blend of eight distinct tobaccos sourced from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Mexico, and Ecuador. The combined age of these tobaccos amounts to an impressive 60 years. Notably, the cigar introduces a unique smoking experience with its uncut foot, inviting aficionados to savor the first inch of the cigar without the wrapper. The suggested retail price for this exceptional cigar is set at $59.
According to Davidoff, individuals born in the Year of the Dragon exhibit eloquence and passion, embodying the qualities of ambitious and charismatic leaders with a temperament that can spark quickly. Edward Simon, Chief Marketing Officer at Oettinger Davidoff, expresses pride in closing the Chinese zodiac cycle, stating, “Our creative teams worldwide have exceeded expectations in honoring the significance of the Dragon with our largest zodiac cigar to date—a remarkable double corona with an uncut foot. I am immensely proud of the success of our series and our ability to enrich the time of our aficionados with our exceptional products.”
Presented in a box of ten cigars, the packaging of the Year of the Dragon cigar is a visual delight. The top surface of the box showcases an iridescent varnished dragon scales pattern, with the central Year of the Dragon icon adorned with a pearl—a symbol of wisdom, prosperity, and fortune in Chinese culture. Inside the box, a wooden tray, divided by a silky red ribbon inspired by the Dragon’s tongue, reveals two distinct sections for the cigars.
